Tasmania is an extraordinary land, one that many hoped might become, in the words of the legendary landscape photographer Olegas Truchanas, “a shining beacon in a dull, uniform and largely artificial world”.

Its remoteness, its wildness, its unique natural world - all seemed to offer the possibility of a prosperous and good future to a state that had for a century been the poorest in the Australian Commonwealth.

Instead, over the past three decades Tasmania has mortgaged its future to the woodchipping industry, which was dominated by one company: Gunns Ltd.

After 14 years of bitter division, protests, legal and boardroom stoushes and the demise of a major listed company, the Gunns Ltd Tasmanian pulp mill is finally dead. 

The $2.5 billion project — first hatched in 2003 — was consigned to history last night (Wed) by Gunns’s receivers, Korda Mentha, who confirmed the pulp mill permit effectively expires today with no buyers to hand.
